International Students Health Insurance

Health Insurance

Medical care in the United States is good but extremely expensive. Proof of comprehensive health insurance is mandatory while attending Chabot College.  Your plan must:

  • include medical coverage for accidents and illnesses
  • include repatriation
  • include medical evacuation, and
  • provide coverage for the entire semester(s) that you are studying

We strongly recommend that you purchase a health insurance policy that provides:

  • medical benefits of at least $100,000 per accident or illness
  • repatriation of remains in the amount of $25,000
  • expenses associated with the medical evacuation of the student to his or her home country in the amount of $50,000
  • a deductible not to exceed $500 per accident or illness.

If you do not have health insurance, you must purchase it and present evidence of continuous medical insurance coverage to the International Student Program (ISP) office before the end of the second week of classes. The ISP Office staff will be happy to assist you by introducing several Insurance plans.
